Before acquiring vineyards, Georges Delille trained as a sommelier in Paris.  In 1963, he bought what would become Domaine de Terrebrune, a property in Ollioules, just east of Bandol, framed by the Mediterranean and the mountain called Gros-Cerveau (Big Brain), dotted with olive groves and scenic views—an idyllic spot.

This blend of 50% mourvedre, 25% grenache and 25% cinsault is fermented slowly at low temperatures, 50% by saignée and 50% by direct press.  It does not go through malolactic fermentation and is aged for 6-8 months in stainless steel before bottling.

Aromas of wild strawberry and pink grapefruit with a subtle hint of fennel. This is a textural, savoury and structured rosé.  On the palate it shows grapefruit pith and kumquat on entry and then creamy rhubarb pie notes on the mid-palate. The finish is refreshing, long and precise.

Widely considered to be one of the most elegant and age-worthy rosés in production.  A must-buy.
